Reader Day with Gardens Illustrated

As part of the 200 year celebrations of Humphry Repton's creation of the Endsleigh red book, Hotel Endsleigh has been enjoying a number of events involving key speakers from the gardening world. We are delighted that Gardens Illustrated have organised a Readers Day at Hotel Endsleigh on Sunday 14th September 2014 to continue these fascinating and informative gardening events.

The day will begin with a talk by Anna Pavord, the garden writer and historian. She is the gardening correspondent for The Independent and regular contributor to Gardens Illustrated.

Repton was famous for painting the land surrounding the properties of the well to do, showing before and after pictures of his designs to show off the possibilities of their landscapes.

Anna Pavord will be looking into the legacy left by Repton and discussing the English Country Garden we know and love today.

The long border at Endsleigh designed by Repton measures over 100m and is filled with Herbaceous plants and will look stunning in September.

The day will include a champagne reception and lunch and will include a tour of the whole garden with our very knowledgeable head gardener.
